  You are just jealous of the GM's every time you have to pull an engine and/or a transmission. :-*
  Thanks for the tip Luvrbus on the rust issues on GM's. I hope every GM owner will, at least check theirs. I'll look at mine.

Years ago we converted a guys 01 Eagle to an automatic.  He had just rebuilt the 4 speed and wanted to take it home so we put it on a pallet and I set it in the bay.  Whole works fell right through to the ground.  Oops.

Take a screw driver and punch through those flakes.  If you get a white powder all the way through the aluminum - that corrosive electrolysis.  Not good.  If it's just on the surface, and is brown, clean it up and apply self etching primer first.
